BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Michigan, United States
bellsbeer.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A smooth, toasty brown ale with hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has the depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy. This balancing act is aided by the generous use of American hops.

16oz can poured into pint.

A - fantastic mid-tan with hints of rust brown through the light - exactly what i expect from a brown ale. 1 finger head with good lacing
S - Nutty malts with a touch of roast
T- Light caramel with a nice touch of bitterness on the finish. Just a hint, but enough to round out the flavor
M - Light and crisp mouth feel with solid carbonation.

O - Super solid beer. A go to brown ale

Toasty, nutty malts the whole way through. However, the deep brown body had some floaties/residue at the bottom of my glass. Overall, I'd be happy to have this beer again, but not one of Bell's better brews.
